Marie Hess, formerly of Clutier, recently enjoyed spending time with three of her five great-great grandchildren. Hess, now of Cedar Rapids, spent several days visiting in the home of her daughter and son in law, Mary and Tom LeClerc, in Pittsburg, Kan. Joining her on the trip were her daughter, Judy Barnard and granddaughter Deb Nachazel. On Sunday, October 16, five generations gathered. This was the first time Hess had met great-great granddaughter, Alyxandria Plank of Aurora, Mo., and the first time in five years that she had been able to spend time with great-great grandsons Jeramiah and Maison Kincaid of Neosho, Mo.
